From Amazon Readers:

Won't kid you as this was most hard to read. I was recuperating from oral surgery so I could "identify" with great pain. And I almost quit reading as it is such an intense story of the hatred of some towards others who are in some way different. I will NOT give it all away -- so a semi-spoiler alert here --- Just as I was about to turn off the Kindle and put the book down ---- I turned the page to the most glorious outcome of it all! lkv

About the Book

After being brutally hacked at with a machete multiple times and with her friend murdered in front of her eyes, Kay Wilson somehow managed not only to fool her attackers and play dead, she rose to her feet and gagged and bound, and bleeding to death, staggered barefoot for over a mile. A harrowing and unfathomable ordeal, this book might have been one that people are afraid to pick up. Instead, The Rage Less Traveled is impossible to put down. Most surprisingly of all, it is peppered with an appropriate absurd hilarity. The Rage Less Traveled is as much about humanity as it is about the evil that tries to destroy it. It depicts the defiance of the human spirit to get through the impossible. The Rage Less Traveled is a sobering yet blistering read that is as much about hope as it is about hell.

About the Author:

Kay Wilson is a motivational speaker who addresses a variety of audiences all over the world and has delivered a speech to the United Nations. In her role as representative of Palestinian Media Watch, she lobbies Western governments to end the foreign aid that rewards her would-be murderers. Together with a Muslim friend, she has created "The Yellow Brick Road," an educational project that teaches children in a Palestinian refugee camp emotional intelligence, empathy, courage, and to cherish their lives.

Wilson, whose actions led to the capture of her assailants, has been recognized by the Israeli Police and the Israeli Security Agency for her courage. The attack was the subject of an acclaimed Israeli documentary, "Black Forest," broadcast in 2018.
